months ago. democratic senator dick durbin of illinois wanted to make clear what happens when intelligence information is still evolving. >> and i'd like to refer to five words for them to reflect on. iraqi weapons of mass destruction. we were told by every level of government here there were iraqi weapons of mass destruction that justified a war, the invasion by the united states. we are still searching for those weapons. they didn't exist. >> clearly, the strangest behavior of the day came from senator rand paul of kentucky, the tea party darling, the leader of the tea party used the hearing to grandstand and advance his political positions. >> had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieve you'd of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> tough talk from president paul. his question to secretary clinton should help get to the bottom of things, don't you think? >> now, my question is the u.s. involved with any procuring of weapons, transfer of weapons, buyin

like to thank the democratic leader dick durbin. there has not been anyone in america who has fought harder for the so-called dreamers that -- than dick durbin has. and he will continue to be -- have the gratitude of many americans. my friend senator rubio who obviously is a new but incredibly important voice in this whole issue of immigration reform, senator menendez also played a key role and, of course, senator graham, who is uncharacteristically absent from this gathering. as senator schumer mentioned, it is the first step in what will continue to be difficult, but achievable. and i don't think i have to remind anyone the last major attempt was over six years ago. now we will again attempt to commit the remaining resources needed to secure the border, modernize and streamline our current immigration system, and create a tough but fair path to citizenship for those here illegally. and i would like to testify again, security situation, along the southwest border, is not perfect. there remains several areas, particularly in arizona, where people's homes are being invaded, where drug
